Semillon 2011 Limited Release

Lemon zest, citrus blossom and dried straw

$24.00 CELLAR CLUB
$21.60

DESCRIPTION

Tasting Notes

Lifted classic young Semillon fruit of lemon peel, citrus blossom and fresh green apple juice. Underneath the pure fruit there are fuller characters of spice and lemon curd from time spent in barrel on yeast lees. A vibrant wine with varietal lemon lime fruit characters up front and crisp acidity across the palate. Barrel fermentation provides depth and texture with seamless oak integration supporting the elegant Semillon fruit.

Wine Making

Barrel fermented in 3 and 4 year old American and French Puncheons the wine was then aged in the same barrels for 6 months before bottling.

Cellaring

A cooler vintage in 2011 enabled us to produce some excellent white wines with intensity of flavor at lower alcohol levels. Already showing supreme balance, we believe this wine will continue to develop in bottle for a further ten years or more. A versatile food wine, try pairing with a zesty lemon seafood risotto and a side of sugar snap peas.
